SD BTBL Online Catalog
The BTBL Online Catalog is an Internet based online catalog and ordering site. If you are a registered patron of the BTBL, you have access to all the books in this library. This catalog includes Braille (mostly children's books) and Twin Vision (both print and Braille in one book).
Twin Vision Braille books allow visually impaired to read with anybody else: grandparents to grandchildren, friends, and classrooms.
Borrow great blockbuster movies on DVD or Blu-Ray from the South Dakota BTBL! The movies include audio tracks that carefully describe the visual elements of the movie-action, characters, locations, costumes, and sets-without interfering with the dialogue or sound effects.
Descriptive Videos bring the movies to you.
